From the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Sarah Walker presents the conclusion of Piano Day at the Proms, with two classics of the 20th century multiple-piano repertoire: Bartok's vibrant Sonata, and - continuing the survey of Stravinsky ballets at the 2009 Proms - his visceral portrayal of Russian peasant wedding celebrations.
